Solid Solution

  • Excerpt: Quick and easy to set up, great features, and quite powerful. We use this as a NAS for our office, it delivers fast throughput, is very easily configured, and has tons of useful add-ons. We have had good success with the VPN and security camera applications making the product all around useful.

BEWARE

Randall M. Pierson, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: BEWARE! I have had this unit for less than 5 months. After first installing the unit, it would loose its network connection every 5 - 7 days and require a reboot to re-establish the connection. The techs at Synology had me replace the network cable and re-install the operating system. That seemed to help at first but within 10 days, the network connection was lost again.

Great NAS

  • Excerpt: I currently have 4 drives in the NAS; it's great knowing I have space for one more if/when I need more data. Quick transfer times and solid all around. Very happy with build quality and software on the machine.

Easily Set Up in Under 10 Minutes

PuckDucker, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this unit for a friend to use in his printing work. He claims to struggle with "network stuff" but needed a reliable, fast network storage device for multiple Macs in his workgroup. I think I could have had it up and running in under 5 min, but I let my friend drive since he would have to be the one managing the system day in and day out. Note that this has not been in service long, so the review is limited to initial install.

Easy Setup, Works Well

JJ the Movie Guy, B&H Photo
22 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I've got this beast hooked up to my home network to store media files, pc backups, etc. Solid build, smaller than I thought it would be, which is a good thing!Super easy setup. I leave it on 24/7, seems to auto sleep and wakeup whenever I access it through my computer. Runs super quiet too.My only wish is that the box came with a little more documentation.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast

Feature packed, if only it didn't crash all the time.

Gary "GB", Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: So, I picked up a Synology diskstation DS1513+ in order to use it as a backup target, surveillance target for a few IP cameras, and a photo center. The first thing you need to do is check their hardware compatibility list and ensure your drives are rated to work with the unit; a diskstation can come without drives (generally) and you can install your our your own. Unfortunately, mine is crashing on a daily basis.

  • Summary: Very fast NAS - using W/D Black Drives we get superior performance... similar to server speed. The way to make this unit perfect would be to allow teaming the NICS!!!!

Very flexible and capable network storage with low power consumption

Maiaibing, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Super flexible and capable network storage device. Use it to run server services for the family to around 20 devices including phones, pads, apple tv, laptops and PC's. Love how easy it is to have it serve info and media via the internet. Will grow with you. Low power consumption for what you get and also much lower than DIY builds - adds up when you pay per kilowatt.

I will buy again.

JR, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: So far I'm satisfied with this product. The setup was easy for the Synology software. There are 3rd party apps that I tried out that were a bit more complicated in terms of setup, but this overall it was pretty easy. Perfect product for a small to medium sized business looking to for backup and easy to setup file distribution. Several plugins/apps are available for download that can help get more out of this product.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up
